Because I was having one.. for a long time. But by staying somewhat positive, I finally got a grip on things and got extremely lucky and hired at an insanely nice company... tomorrow there is a MANDATORY pool party where we get paid $15 an hour for 4 hours to show up and drink alcohol and have fun. The money is way, way better than they presented it as being in the interview process.. there is a pool table / ping pong table in the lobby, ect. They buy lunch for us an average of 3x a week. After bodybuilding so long and using supplements I had destroyed my thyroid gland, so my doctor got me on Cytomel at a high dose and I've finally got some energy back and somehow I've managed to retain my muscle by working out 2x a week during the past year. Then I got the break and was able to get hired. Lucky enough to be with someone who supported my lazy ass during my unemployment streak (which was seriously lengthy, like almost 9 months) and believed in me, and had my family help me a few times as embarrassing as it may be. So if you are in that shit period like I was, see if you have a physical problem that is keeping you down, and fix it. Stay positive if you can and try to be with someone who recognizes your strengths and knows you have value. If I was able to work my way out of that patch then anybody else on the planet can do it. I got my confidence back and started applying for jobs on craigslist and in person, and BAM. Just got super lucky that this company liked how my voice sounded on the phone, because that's my job mainly. Been there for a while now and I'm almost able to finally move into my first home. But this thread isn't meant to be about me, I detailed my situation to help those who may be down see how quickly things can change for the better. Any similar stories of encouragement are welcome. Best of luck to anyone in a rough spot, your lucky break will come if you put yourself in a position to allow it!
